This hazardous weather outlook is for portions of southwest Lower
Michigan.

.DAY ONE...Today and Tonight

Light snow is expected north of Big Rapids this afternoon into
this evening. Some freezing drizzle is expected inland of US-131
tonight, mostly north of Big Rapids. This may result in some
travel issues tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Friday through Wednesday

Any freezing drizzle Friday morning, over the northern sections
of our forecast area, should end by mid to late morning. Again
some travel issues are possible there.

Lake effect snow showers should be expected Saturday night into
Sunday morning. Expect some accumulations west of US-131 but for
the most part snowfall should be less than three inches, where it
does accumulate.

A more significant snow storm is possible Monday afternoon into
Tuesday morning. Some significant track issues remain but our
confidence is increasing that we will see some snow from this
system. Behind it cold air and lake effect snow are likely into
Wednesday.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
